Before I Fall Review

Before I Fall
                                    Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver



What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life? 



Samantha Kingston has it all—looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12th should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it’s her last. The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. In fact, she re-lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she had ever imagined.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked this book out, this book got so much hype that I was scared the book didn't live up to my expectations, but I was wrong. The book is wonderfully written,  beautifully crafted. I thought this book really put things into perspective and make you evaluate your life and appreciate the people around you.

Sometimes Sam irritated me and I found my self wanting to shake her to make some sense into her. The characters where lovable and real even the annoying ones made you felt for them. 

I believe this book is great for teenagers, teaches great lessons and will let them thinking on their choices, hopefully something good would be learned.

There where times that I wanted to stop reading because it turned repetitive but I knew it was better to keep reading. Things got more intense from chapter to chapter. Overall a great novel.

  4. I have seen this book around for what seems a very long time (maybe because it's been everywhere,lol). Anyway, sounds like a book worth reading even though I'm not a YA fan necessarily.
